Clamping Force Calculator
The Clamping Force Calculator is a tool used to calculate the force required to hold two objects together based on torque and other parameters. In the provided code, you can enter the torque (in Newton-meters), bolt diameter (in meters), and select the coefficient of friction from the dropdown menu.
The formula used to calculate the clamping force is:
Clamping Force = Torque / (Coefficient of Friction * Bolt Diameter)
If the user enters a torque of 50 Nm, a bolt diameter of 0.02 meters, and selects a coefficient of friction of 0.2 (steel), the clamping force can be calculated as:
Clamping Force = 50 / (0.2 * 0.02) = 1250 N
